Avenue HQ And Barclays launch Leeds tech hub
Retail bank Barclays and workspace specialist Avenue HQ have officially launched their new digital and tech incubator in Leeds.
Situated on East Parade, the five-storey incubator will offer coworking and private offices and event spaces, as well as a coffee shop and a rooftop bar.
Entrepreneurs and SMEs who use the hub will have access to Eagle Labs’ initiatives and knowledge, such as funding options, mentoring, and a range of events.
Helen Clarke, Barclays Area Manager in Leeds and North Yorkshire, said: “We’re really pleased to be partnering with Avenue HQ and this launch will further our investment in Yorkshire’s entrepreneurs.
“The city’s businesses are hungry for flexible workspace and we want to help local start-ups to win the ‘champions league’ of growth and job creation.
The hub is the second collaboration between Avenue HQ and Barclays, and will be the third Eagle Lab to open in the Yorkshire region.
Matthew Kennedy, founder and CEO of Avenue HQ, said: “Avenue HQ has proven to deliver high-quality collaborative spaces, enabling start-ups to work alongside, and be supported by, established businesses. We are therefore delighted to secure this partnership with Barclays for our Leeds site.
“We recognise Leeds as a city with a thriving start-up scene, across all industries and sectors. Our aim, supported by Barclays, is to bring together ambitious entrepreneurs and inspiring businesses from across the city to help continue this growth, fuelling collaboration and creating more opportunities.”
